Part of the issue here is that cavemen (horrible phrase - let's say early Homo sapiens) obtained their foods from non-agricultural methods, or naturally grown. We have since moved into an agricultural revolution, where we started to grow crops. This was all well and good for a while, but growing the same crops in the same area has a tendency to reduce the vitamin levels in the subsequent fruit (as they have been leeched from the soil).

Right ok people, I may be being retarded, so a little help if possible. I'm giving this a go... i'm not sure of how good it is though tbh. I picked up multivitamins yesterday with something like 80mg of vit C and those fizzy tablet things which are just vit C at 240mg.
So i'm going to have to take 12 of those fizzy tabs a day?
And also, if I shouldn't focus on consuming loads of produce like peppers and oranges because of chemicals, then what about the chemicals in the pills? surely they're not great either

I choose 3g a day because of what the American government legally mandated that zoos and other institutions which held Great Apes had to give them a body-weight equivalent of 3.6 grams a day in Vitamin C.
None dare call it conspiracy? Oh wait, that's been used before.

TextThank you for sharing this valuable info. Yes, I also agree with taking B of Soda or whatever method of alkalinizing your system (raw juice of one lemon in water everyday).
